Polkadoodles Challenge - Buzz off bugs!

The challenge this week at Polkadoodles is to create a Get Well card
with an image of an insect and a ribbon type thing like string,raffia etc.....
I had a lot of fun with this one tonight! Least of all because my Caterpillar was rather mad looking once I had made him!

I have used an embossed card base, think a papermania one.
Flowers are downloads from the Polkadoodles shop.
Flowers were then coloured with copics as were the paper Ric rack stems which were then attached with eyelets and curled.

I added a couple of tiny rub on insects by flowers from Basic Grey - bee and ladybug.
Then using paper fringe coloured with copics I made Cameron Caterpillar - he is very friendly
and I am sure would cheer you up if feeling a bit under the weather!
Also if you should be interested Polkadoodles are looking for a new member for their DT. I recon this would be a fab opportunity for someone - they seem like a great bunch of people! Go have a look and have fun doodling......
